Ratepayers will finance hostile takeover | Letter to the editor

To the editor:

Climate change is the most serious issue of our time. But the proposed takeover of Puget Sound Energy by the city of Bainbridge Island is not an effective way to address this issue.

The hostile takeover of PSE will involve substantial expenditures for a lengthy lawsuit, for new equipment, for more city workers and for a building to house them. All this will be paid for by 1,200 ratepayers.

PSE is committed to being mostly out of the coal-fired energy production by 2022.

Wouldn’t it be ironic if the city of Bainbridge Island was tied up in the courts even as PSE has phased out coal-generated electricity?

We should stick with PSE.
